We had a number of activities and events planned for 2020 but they are all on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic and face to face Scouting being put on hold until further notice.
We hope that towards the end of the year we can continue our face to face Scouting and raise vital funds for the group.
A exceptionally busy year for Scouting and also the hall related activities for everyone connected with the group and the build team.
We still continue with a number of the litter clearances at Essex Cricket Club throughout the summer.
We also raised £600 at Chelmer Vally High School BBQ this year, again another succesful event where we were lucky with the weather. The amount of help we had on the night was fantastic which in turn made the evening and the packing down much quicker.
This year has been another succesful year for fundraising for the group.
Over the year we have raised £1600 clearing up after a number of Essex County Cricket matches. The support over the season from all those that help has been fantastic. We hope to have the oportunity next year to continue with this fundraising activity.
We also raised £950 at CVHS BBQ this year, again another succesful event where we were lucky with the weather. The amount of help we had on the night was fantastic which in turn made the evening and the packing down much quicker.
We have a plan of fundraising events in the calendar for 2019 so will get this on here soon.
We currently have a crowd funding page that is proving a great success in raising vital funds for the new building.

Over the 2017 season we raised over £1800 that went toward family camp cost and also subsididing the end of term group activities including which Jump street.
We plan to continue with the litter picks in the 2018 season and currently sorting dates.
We were once again invited back to provide the BBQ at the highly sussesful CVHS BBQ. It was difficult to judge the quantities to order as last year we had a lot of rain and the entry number were down, this year we were lucky and the rain stayed away.
After taking out costs and a donation to the event the BBQ raised £790.17 which was £100 up on last year which was great.
Thank you again to everyone that made them selves avaliable, it really does make a difference when we have a big crowd to support the event and more importantly pack down and get the gear away.
We have regularly had a team collect litter after county and T20 match at Essex Cricket Club. Over the 2016 season we raised over £1800 that went directly in to that years Family Camp keeping cost low for all participants.
We are continuing the litter picks in the 2017 season.
8th Chelmsford once again attended Chelmer valley fireworks to offer our BBQ services. Unfortunately this year we were not blessed with the weather and had rain throughout the day, this did not help with the number spectators. The event raised up £660 which was great considering the weather. Thank you to everyone who braved the conditions and helped out on the day/evening, it really is appreciated.
The group organised a car wash with help from Chelmsford Fire Station, we were luck with the weather and raised £124.
A number of members from the group headed to B&M store in Chelmsford to off assistance with Christmas bag packing. We had a great turn out of parent, leaders and young people and raised a total of £171.82 towards the build fund.
Fireworks this year was another succesful event raising £1065.65 for us at the 8th Chelmsford towards our build fund. It is a great event that really relies on the full support of the group and the network of people we have to enable this to happen.
It is difficult to explain quite how hard the BBQ team work, but surfice to say we serve over 1000 items in around 2 hours........
Again we supported Chelmer Valley School PTA with our BBQ service raising £1061 for our group. Fantastic effort by everyone.
Once again we went along to the Chelmer Vally School Fireworks with our BBQ set up. It was a cold and windy evening but a great night with fantastic fireworks.
We sold out of all of our stock which was a great raising at total of £745 that will go toward the build fund.
A massive thank you to all who attended on the night and helped with the organising, shopping and setting up for the event. It is great to see so many people there helping out on the night so we thank you all for your time.
In Noveber 2011 we were invited to run the BBQ at the Chelmer Valley School fireworks.
This was a succesful night for us as we nearly sold out and raised a total of £601.22, this was increased with match funding of £500 from Llyods TSB. This gave us a total of £1101.22 for the night.
We hope to return in November 2012.
